Thomas and his grandfather Mallakai, if you’ve not me them before, are the main protaganists in the Wolves of Winter saga. Tom is an adventurous little boy when we first meet him, and an overworked, sulky teenager by the time of the second tale. The legend of the Wolves of Winter is brought to life by the words of his grandfather, who mysteriously has knowledge of the hidden history of this elite band of fighters – a kind of royal secret service from the time of King Stephen (circa 450 the Light).
The Wolves of Winter Part III will be different, with Thomas taking central place in the adventure. Will he join his grandfather and work to an unknown aim to keep the Great North Road closed, or will he give in to greed, and help his father secure a fortune for the people of Greendale?
All will be revealed as the saga continues later this year. Part II of The Wolves of Winter is due out in April 2010.
